I can't read 'proper' things when I'm travelling or whatever, so Reacher books make for a good literary equivalent of an action film I can safely read whilst dozing without missing vital prose if my eyes slide over a page or two.
Plus it's relatively entertaining fluff at that.
My guess is that Deuts and I empathise more with a statuesque injustice-righting vigilante that always gets the girl than an Italian ever could?
You empathise with him because he's a crashing bore.
I can imagine being stuck with him in the pub while he shared his detailed knowledge of bullet velocities and wishing one would hit me in the head.
Don't worry, as a character Reacher is very solitary and doesn't like talking, so along with the rest of the pub he's unlikely to want to have a conversation with you.
Couple of pints and some pork scratchings and you wouldn't be able to shut him up.
And then he'd start crying when he remembered he was bald and married to a German in a loveless, sexless marriage.
And he'd come back from the gents with piss over one leg and suede shoe.
Like Dis in about 4 years time in fact.
Or you now, apart from the German and the pork scratchings.
See, what you've done there is the internet equivalent of "I know you are, but what am I?"
I've never heard anyone use that phrase until now.
I'm still having difficulty understanding it.
I understand the words obv, but it seems you've thrown them together randomly like the a Heston with alzheimers recipe.
It sounds like you may have an UTI. Maybe get a urine dip - it's quite normal at your age.
